argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - APR 17, 2004
Slumming at Dan's bday party -- upon arriving Dan offers me this gem of a beer, in anticiaption of #2K. Clear straw body with small-medium white head. Aroma is light, bready, grassy. Taste is the same -- innocuous and non-offensive. Light body. Not as bad as I feared.

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle. Not much aroma, just a bit of malt. Golden color with a decent white head. Thin bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is rather clean malt and light hop. The finish is not quite dry, and just a little bitter. Arguably better than Bud.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear, apple juice-gold with a bare, white head. Ligt malt, corn and apple aroma. Swee flavor with faint dough and some light fruits. Light to medium in body with fizzy carbonation. Crisp and sharp in the finish, with some lingering apple notes. Light dryness. Not bad.
